Final preparations are under way for an exciting 2013 Commencement Weekend at High Point University. This event is always a highlight of the academic year. It will be a weekend of celebration, reflection, motivation and gratitude.
Each year HPU is committed to bringing an internationally known speaker to campus for this special occasion. This year we are proud to have Apple Computer co-founder, Steve Wozniak, as our speaker. Past Commencement speakers have included former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, Dr. Bill Cosby, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, NASA Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin, Muhtar Kent, CEO of the Coca-Cola Company, and former First Lady Laura Bush.
On this website, you will find information needed to plan your weekend. This experience is intended to honor our graduates and their families, and we trust you will find the details you seek in making it a memorable event in the life of your family.
On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration, we look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with you and your family.
